Faro Airport


The Vila Gale Albacora is a brilliant four-star hotel just outside of Tavira and located just a few hundred metres from the beautiful sandy beaches of the Algarve. This superb beach hotel offers a relaxing retreat away from the livelier towns of Faro and Tavira where guests can unwind and spend their time when they are not on the golf course listening to the therapeutic sounds of the rolling waves. Situated in the heart of the Ria Formosa Nature Reserve, the Albacora is a true eco-hotel that has received many awards for its sustainable environmental practices and where the activities related to nature tourism is a major strength. Residents will be immersed in tradition and culture in this hotel, which was once an old tuna fish market.

The hotel boasts a wealth of leisure facilities that include a spa with an indoor pool, sauna and Turkish bath, a bar and a popular restaurant serving local and international dishes using many local products bought from nearby Tavira.
